Gammon Henry

Letter from J. L. Henry, Dayton, Tennessee.

CAPT. ED GAMMON. - J. L. Henry writes from Dayton, Tenn.: "Was he the youngest captain in the Confederate army? He was just sixteen and commanded a company in the 1st Tennessee Cavalry. On the morning of his death he company and ours were sent to bring on the fight, and just below the town we encountered the Yankees, and Ed was killed. I was with Captain Gammon at Piedmont and many other places besides Morristown, and I can say that, in addition to being the youngest captain, which I guess he was, a braver boy or man never lived than Ed Gammon."
